Meal 1: Lemon and Garlic Butter Shrimp and Cauliflower Rice Casserole

This can be a planned or last-minute meal! If you can plan, defrost bag of shrimp overnight in the refrigerator. (Hack – place the bag in a glass container or on a dinner plate to catch any melting water from the package.) If not, you can quickly defrost shrimp under cool running water when you are ready to cook.

Wash and dry lemon. Slice in half, and slice 4 thin rounds for garnish. Zest the lemon halves, placing zest in a small bowl. Juice the lemon halves and set aside in a measuring cup or small bowl.

Preheat oven to 200 degrees.

Remove tails from raw shrimp, rinse and place them on a clean plate or bowl. (Flavor Full Hack – If you like, you could add herbs and spices to the raw shrimp, such as Italian Herb Blend or Sriracha sauce. Both will blend well with the lemon, garlic, and butter.)

Use a large saucepan and follow package directions to prepare 4 cups of whole grain brown or white rice. When rice is cooked, fluff with a fork, remove half and place into a bowl to cool. Return pot cover to keep warm.

While rice is cooking, pour about 2 TBSP oil in the skillet, and turn heat on to medium high. When oil begins to heat up, add garlic. Stir, allowing garlic to lightly brown and flavor the oil. Remove from oil and keep next to the stove in a small bowl.

Add cherry tomatoes, allowing them to soften and split, when they are tender, add the cauliflower rice and lemon zest. Stir to combine and heat the cauliflower rice through.

Remove veggies to a shallow casserole dish and add two cups of prepared rice to the casserole. Add the browned garlic. Mix gently, cover with foil, and place the casserole dish in the warm oven.

Return skillet to the burner and add 1 Tbsp PICS Olive Oil and the 2 TBSP of PICS Unsalted Butter. Heat at medium temperature until butter is melted, (don’t allow the butter to burn).

Add the shrimp and lemon juice to the skillet, and sauté quickly until shrimp are opaque and firm.

When done, remove the casserole dish with veggies and whole grain rice from the oven. Add the shrimp and all the liquid from the skillet, using the wooden spoon to scrape any bits. Divide into 4 servings, and garnish with the lemon slices. Enjoy! 

Leftover love – if there is any! Make the leftovers a work lunch – drain and rinse a can of PICS white beans. Mix 1.2 cup into the shrimp and rice for a pop of plant-powered protein that plays well with the flavors in the casserole and powers you through your busy workday!

Meal 2: Teriyaki Pineapple Shrimp and Rice Stir-Fry

The fresh pineapple makes this stir-fry special! Using the leftover rice from the first prep day saves time and budget, along with the frozen onions and peppers – already prepped and can go from freezer to pan. Bonus – you enjoy 2 servings of seafood in one week, as recommended by the Dietary Guidelines for Americans!

Defrost bag of shrimp overnight in the refrigerator. (Hack – place the bag in a glass container or on a dinner plate to catch any melting water from the package.) If not, you can quickly defrost shrimp under cool running water when you are ready to cook.

Place leftover prepared rice in the bowl with a ¼ cup of water. Cover and place in the microwave, but do not heat until you are ready to serve the Shrimp and Vegetables.

Remove frozen veggie bag from the freezer and open it, leaving it ready near the stove.

Wash hands and place pineapple on the cutting board. Cut off the bottom of the pineapple, then stand on end and slice the hard skin off, using the top to hold it steady. Slice the pineapple off into long spears, trimming the top end off, and set half aside. Chop the remaining half into bite sized pieces.

Place skillet on the stove. Add oil and turn on to medium heat. Add frozen veggies to skillet, allowing them to soften and for 2 – 3 minutes, or until defrosted and softened. Add the defrosted shrimp, moving quickly around the skillet. When shrimp is almost fully cooked, add ½ cup Teriyaki sauce, and stir to combine with the sauce and veggies.

Warm rice and water in the microwave for 2-3 minutes, fluffing with a fork once to heat evenly. Divide rice and plate, then top with stir-fried shrimp and vegetables. Enjoy!


Double Bonus! Caramelized Pineapple Dessert – Chop remaining fresh pineapple into bite-sized pieces. Heat a large skillet or griddle and melt 2 – 3 TBSP butter. When butter is melted, add ¼ cup of PICS Light Brown Sugar and a dash of salt. If you like, you can also add ½ tsp vanilla. Bring butter mixture to a simmer. Add the chopped pineapple, stir to coat the pieces, and raise heat to medium high, allowing it to reach a low boil. (If needed, you can add another TBSP butter.) Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 6 minutes, ensuring the sugar doesn’t burn. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly – serve as is, OR top with PICS Whipped Cream, OR over PICS Vanilla Ice Cream. Whatever you do, don’t leave the kitchen or it will be gone before you come back! Caramelized pineapple can also be stored in a covered, microwaveable dish in the refrigerator, and served cold or reheated within 3 days. YUM!
